Yippee Aye-Ay

Outriders coming… If you believe all that guff about Milburn and Clarke having a friendly chat with Brown about the “need for a debate” and emailing the PLP for just that reason, you’ll believe the tooth fairy took all the WMD in Iraq away. Them darn Outriders is gettin’ themselves a possee together tomorrow…

Scottish Question

Could someone point Charlie Kennedy in the right direction. He was just seen by a co-conspirator heading towards the Chamber via all four walls.

Blears’ SpAd is on Holiday

Paul Richards is a strange lad. He chooses to spend his holidays working on the boss’ deputy leadership campaign and ringing Guido to tell him he was on leave yesterday and today “in accordance with the Code of Conduct”. Wonder why he panicked and bothered changing his Facebook entry this morning, after Guido’s story, in that case?
It will be September by the time the campaign is over – if he is going to help the boss and stick to the Code of Conduct, he better take unpaid leave. The co-conspirators will be watching…

If you see any other greasy pole climbing SpAds helping their principal’s campaign at the taxpayer’s expense, email Guido. Photos especially welcome.

Sith Launch "Operation Bluewash"

As the Charity Commission looks increasingly likely to deal with the Sith firmly they have launched a transparently obvious attempt to rope in Tories to provide cover for them. One problem – they don’t know any.

So they have taken to advertising in the Speccie in the hope of finding Tories interested in what Margaret Beckett has to say in a John Smith Memorial Lecture. Not that attractive a subject to Tories Guido thinks. No doubt when the Charity Commission rebukes them for their Brownite partisanship they will point at the Speccie ad and say “we tried”. Guido has magnanimously RSVP’d.

Now it is a public charity event being held on public property (No. 11 as usual). Since Guido is a member of the public they can’t have any reason to refuse to allow him to attend…

Spin Cycle : Caine Off to Bell Pottinger

Jonathan Caine, a former Tory Northern Ireland SpAd for Mayhew is going back to spinning. He has had previous with the Communications Group and is until next week still a SpAd on NIO & DCA until he joins Bell Pottinger.

More stories of Tories off to spin merchants welcome.

Do email Guido names of newly minted Tory lobbyists…

Facebook F***-Up – Blear’s SpAd Admits Misconduct

The whole Facebook fad has passed Guido by, the many invitations go unanswered.

Paul Richards should have done the same, or at least have been more careful before he advertised online his breaches of the Code of Conduct for Special Advisers. Unless he is currently on leave, the above is a prima facie admission of misconduct. My thanks to a supporter of a rival candidate for the above. No doubt someone more public spirited will make the appropriate complaint.

UPDATE : He has hurriedly changed his entry this morning. You know Guido might just be motivated enough to make a formal complaint. He is after all wasting taxpayers money on Blears’ private interests.
